Event Information

Join the Conservancy and local partners for brand new Rod & Reel fishing clinics!

Our fishing clinics are designed to introduce the public to the ecology and life of the East River, in order to foster conservation and environmental stewardship of our waterways. Working with expert anglers and a marine biologist, participants will learn the basics of line fishing, while contributing to an ecological survey — helping to monitor the health of our river. All organisms caught are cared for by professionals and safely returned back to the water.

All ages welcome, equipment provided on site. Sessions are drop-in only.

Presented in partnership with New York Department of Environmental Conservation.
